This Chrome extension has been taken offline and OP has requested for the thread to be archived.
Original post by OP:
I missed out on an IBL internship this semester at uni, so I thought I’d spend my free time on a side project instead to liven up my dead resume. But it had to be something I’d use instead of like some to-do list app from a Udemy course that I’d just do as an exercise.
So I figured since I use OzBargain a lot, I’d create a chrome extension for it. Tbh it started off just being for myself, cause I personally find OzBargain’s UI outdated + a lot of features are hidden behind the scenes (like filtering). But I thought maybe others might want to use it too.
So, if anyone wants to try it out, here’s the link:
- Modern UI + dark mode
- Infinite Scroll
- Quickview posts without navigating away and cycle through with prev/next buttons
- Sort posts by their votes or freebie status
- Filter out targeted, expired and out of stock posts
- View comments based on whether they’re first, new, top or controversial
- back to top button
For now, it works only as a visual/user-friendly layer for deals since that’s what I mainly use the site for. For anything else like the actual deal post itself, or competitions and forums, it minimises itself. If you find it annoying and want to choose when to see it, you can change it to start minimised in settings.
I wanted to avoid messing around with private account info, so if you want to vote or comment on anything, it just minimises and takes you to the Ozbargain native page/comment so you can do it there.
It’s definitely in experimental (or alpha?) stage at the moment. My testing basically was just me and a bunch of mates using it for a couple of days and pointing out bugs as they saw them. So yeah when you eventually come across some, please let me know.
